Join the conversation by attending a New York Times Talk. New York Times Talks are a way to get students more engaged with local, regional, national, and/or international occurrences. Students, faculty, and staff gather to discuss and have a conversation on a topic that is right from the headlines. Talks are usually facilitated by a TU faculty or staff member. We don’t just feed the brain we also feed you! Free pizza and beverages are provided at each of the Talks.
Past topics have ranged from health care reform to gay marriage, immigration to climate change. Attendees are encouraged to be active participants in the conversation, as well as have an open mind and be respectful of other’s thoughts, opinions, and ideas.
The New York Times Talks are now held twice a month from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM in the University Union Room 305. See schedule below for more details.
The Office of Civic Engagement & Leadership is looking for dynamic faculty and staff members who are interested in engaging students, faculty, and staff in a conversation about topics facing our neighborhoods, our nation, and our country ripped right from the headlines!
If you are interested in facilitating a New York Times Talk or have any questions about facilitating a talk please contact Scott Hackett, Coordinator for Civic Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org
